By adapting the rating mechanism, readers can preliminatively judge the quality of the paper. Only the subject closely related reviewers can rate. Deep Science will recommend and select most closely related reviewers by using keywords match up.

The rating will be judged by four levels: Quality, repeatability, innovation and impact.

General factors for rating

Reviewers will provide a rating from one star (poor) to five stars (excellent)

Level of Quality

Level of Repeatability

Level of Innovation

Does the work represent a novel approach or new findings in comparison with other publications in the field?

Level of Impact

Does the work have potential huge impact to the related research area?


There is an overall average rating for a preprint paper. An average rating for each different level will also be recorded. There is no limit on the number of ratings.
